Each Assembly District in Brooklyn is represented by two District Leaders. These 42 District Leaders make most of the decisions governing the Brooklyn Democratic Party. Every District Leader position is up for election in the Democratic primary in June of every even-numbered year. If you have strong relationships with the communities in your district and a vision for how our party should operate, you might make a great District Leader!
